and your former colleague, senator john kerry, who will serve as we confirm him in the next 24 hours as the 68th secretary of state. senator kerry has served in this senate in a distinguished amount of public service since 1985. he grew up traveling the world with his father in the foreign service. he fought in vietnam and was awarded the bronze and silver stars along with three purple hearts. i know he is going to build upon and continue the legacy and the extraordinary record of secretary clinton, and will enhance america's leadership in the world. i look forward to his speedy confirmation. madam president, i yield the floor. a senator: madam president? mr. rubio: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from florida. mr. rubio: let me begin by thanking the senior senator from florida a few moments ago made some very kind remarks about me and i appreciate them very much. let me say you're the best python hunter in the senate. those who don't know what i'm talking about can look it up in your newspaper accounts a few weeks ago in the everglades. thank you for your kind wo
. >> it did. >> no i would not, because we know what the situation is today. >> for senator john mccain, immigration reform had been a priority. and then he was against it. and now he is for it again. some modern figures in the republican party are associated with immigration reform, people like former president george w. bush and his brother, jeb bush, former republican party chairman mel martinez, who last night i described as the former florida state republican party chairman. he was the national chairman. i'm sorry for that. he is a former florida senator. so some of these guys are associated throughout their careers with immigration reform. but the rest of the party, the current elected officials in the party are just whipsawing around on the issue wildly, taking wildly different and directly contradictory responses from election cycle to election cycle. as republicans, i think, try to decide if the upward creeping percentage of latinos in the american electorate is something they're going to use to stoke their base's fear of a brown planet, or whether it's something they're go

spending. i think he was interested in 2011, almost got a deal with speaker john boehner on a grand bargain on entitlement reform, crafting a budget now. i don't think you're going to see major cuts in that. it's a significant shift. remember, obama said the deficit kept his awake in the first term. through his actions, you know, he's not pursuing a lot of cuts and changes to entitlements. liz: what is feasible for the president to get through with a window of 16 months? gun control? what do you think he can push through successfully? >> well, i think he will try to push through gun control, and they are starting right away, and i know biden is in virginia trying to sell the plan, but i think that what's clear is that the president's agenda and the american people's agenda are different. it's expwressing to see that the president is tackling those issues that are at the very bottom of the public's priorities. climate change, gun control, and even infrastructure. these are not changes that the american public wants. they are asking for real economic growth, job creation, tackling the budget

: this week, president obama's nominee to become the next secretary of state, senator john kerry was received very well. his confirmation hearing by democrats and republicans. >> i commend his nomination to you without resignation. >> he'll be a terrific bridge from the hill to the administration. >> reporter: his support in the senate is not expected to d is likely re the expected to become the next secretary of state. but, handicapping the odds for confirmation of president obama's other nominees for important positions, is tricky. like richard cordray for the director of the consumer financial protection bureau. >> president barack obama: after they refused to give him a vote, i took action to appoint him on my own. >> reporter: the president renominated him this week and senator mike crapo, one of 45 republican senators to opposed his nomination last year and, the senator said this week until key structure changes are made to the bureau to ensure accountability and transparency, i will continue my opposition to any nominee for director. confirmation hearings for deputy national security a

former good friend, john mccain, just eviscerated him, grilled him, didn't give him a chance. yes or no. give me an answer. were you correct or incorrect? i mean, there is a way to try to do that, but clearly he came with a very hostile attitude. and it was very painful to watch. >> yeah. awkward at times. >> i mean, john mccain, mika, didn't let him answer a question. i'm sorry, out of that exchange, it was not chuck hagel who looked bad. >> ted cruz looked even worse. >> yeah. >> oh, my god. >> we're going to show all those coming up. >> he wasn't prepared, mika, in a lot of ways that were concerning. i think, again, the democrats, republicans, independents alike, if the republicans party thinks badgering an ill-prepared witness that way is going to help them with middle america, they don't know middle america. they could have just let him talk around in circles, but it was -- you know, you talk about the new senator from texas, john mccain -- >> i agree with you. >> as joe manchin said, it was embarrassing. >> compare it to a week ago, to a very prepared hillary clinton. whether badg

[laughter] um, well, yes and no. i think, obviously, politically republicans distanced themselves from george w. bush because it was politic thing to do. numbers don't lie. he became very unpopular. parties tend not to embrace figures and politicians who become unpopular. my view is that a lot of the distress over bush's domestic agenda from which republicans fled beginning really in 2005 had, it was a, it was an ancillary result of th

, this appears to be the very first time senator john mccain has signed onto one of the president's legislative priorities, and you may be surprised to learn that republicans have made this sudden shift from previous immigration proposals such as herman cain's electrified fence and mitt romney's stance of self-deportation. after all, it wasn't even a year ago that congressman steve king of iowa compared america's immigrant selection process to that of picking out a dog. >> pick the one that's the friskiest, the one that's engaged the most, and not the one that's over there sleeping in the corner. you get the pick of the litter, and yourself a pretty good bird dog. we got the pick of every darn civilization on the planet. >> right, pick work dogs, not lazy dogs from those donor countries. congressman king said later his remarks were meant as a compliment. charming. so there has been an evolution by the republican party and it's not because rick perry accused anyone of not having a heart. senator mccain, how about some of that famous straight talk? >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at
hometown. let's bring in john berman in new york, so what will be the mayor's political legacy you think? >> carol i don't think you can overstate his political legacy. for more than ten years ed koch was synonymous with new york. new york city was teetering on the brink of bankruptcy and by sheer force of will and a pr salesman, ed koch really lifted new york out from the doldrums and in a statement today the current mayor michael bloomberg said new york city lost an irrepressable icon our most charismatic lecheerleader and champion. ed koch has been out of office for more than 20 years but still had tremendous, tremendous reach in this city. his political ideology changed over the years. he was a four-term congressman before he was mayor, a liberal, a real liberal in new york city, then he shifted to the right over his time as the mayor, and then in 2004 he actually endorsed george w. bush for the presidency. he was controversial at times, a lot of heated racial conflict in new york city in his time as mayor but when you think back at the legacy which was your original question it was
